complete bay area news coverage, starts right now. this is ktvu channel 2 news at noon. >> as we speak new leads, developments, investigators are following up on them. >> as the search continues for a little girl reportedly kidnapped in oakland, why her father has been arrested on other charges related to the case. that is the top story at
noon. good afternoon, i am tori campbell, the disappearance of daphne webb has taken a turn, her father has been arrested, sal castaneda has the rest of the story. good afternoon. >> reporter: good afternoon, you heard the father was arrestd for child endangerment. ktvu has also learned that cadaver dog found the scent of the missing girl at john webb's home, the father who lives there with the mother of the girl. police say when webb left his child in the car with an elderly relative yesterday he put that child at risk. 21-month-old daphne viola webb was reported taken after 11:00 yesterday morning from a market in east oakland. an amber alert was issued an hour and a half later. the toddler's father, john webb, as we mentioned says he went into the corner store, left daphne with his elderly mother and she was gone when he came back. a witness told ktvu he spoke
with the father shortly after the reported abduction. >> he just asked me had i seen anybody around his car, around his vehicle. and i told him no. i said what happened. and he said that his daughter had been taken and mom's purse had been taken as well. >> police say they are keeping the investigation open to all possibilities, including looking at the father as a possible suspect. to that end officers have searched the park where the father took the little girl. searched the home he shared with the child's mother and spoke tone people who knew him. oakland police say this investigation is very active today. >> we are going to continue to shift resources, follow up leads in the investigation and move throughout the city to make sure that every area, every yard, building, possible witness, video surveillance footage that we would be able to obtain, our investigators would have access to that.
>> reporter: now we are looking at video from news chopper 2 as oakland police are searching the shoreline near the martin luther king area near doolittle drive. we have found out john webb has not been rested. when we called the jail they said he is no longer here at the oakland jail. he is on his way to santa rita jail, the alameda county jail, we have no word on why he is going there or why he hasn't been released but we will follow this story throughout the day. sal castaneda, ktvu channel 2 news. >> oakland police are also searching for the person who stole a car at gun point last night and drove off with the baby inside. it happened about 10:45 at the westco gas station on high street. a family of five had stopped there to fill up. they say a man with a gun walked up and told them to get out. the man drove off with a 1-year-
old baby in the back seat. shortly after the carjacking the baby was found safe about a mile away. >> the people that took the car left their jackets on top of the baby, so i guess they weren't really trying to kill the baby or anything or hurt the baby. >> a person walking by saw the baby under a tree and called police. so far no arrests have been made. the investigation into ashanna flight 214 still has a way to go but the work at the crash scene there is winding down. claude deep wopping joins us live to let us know what is happening on the runway and when it might re-open. good afternoon. >> reporter: good afternoon, they told me they are in the final stages of their investigation and clean up and repair work is underway but there is still a lot of work to do ahead. i want to show you the wreckage, that is flight 214
and work to clear that away could start as early as tonight. inside sfo the best indication of the impact the investigation is having on travelers comes from the arrival and departure screens, already today 50 flights have been cancel and delays are averaging 45 minutes by day's end if today is like the last few there will be about 100 cancellations. >> i wasn't delayed coming out of dfw. i have some friends on another flight out of dfw that are delayed. >> our flight was right there and transferred everybody out. >> the ntsb tome they are close to wrapping up their on screern work and getting ready to head back to headquarters to put it back together. >> when we are done the salvage operation will move the aircraft. the majority of it will stay locally but we do have parts of it we have already taken back and some parts we will continue to take back to dc. >> the runway was turned back over to sfo last night. the wreckage could be handed
over tonight or tomorrow. this morning heavy equipment started moving in in preparation for that next phase of clean up and repair. but it is still unclear how long that phase will last. we know crews will need to lay down about 500 tons of asphalt but we also know damage assessments under the plane have yet to be made. but one passenger told us his thoughts aren't on delays or cancellations or inconvenience but on all the people on board flight 214. >> sitting in the window, i looked out the window and there it was so it seemed kind of surreal. >> reporter: so expect a lot of heavy equipment to move on to that runway today and tonight and for the next few days. for now the airport says best case scenario for getting that runway back open is sunday or monday but a more realistic aim is probably beginning to middle of next week. live near sfo, claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you claudine, or news
